Narrative:
"Dived towards the ground just before landing". It was raining, according to the source.
The final report by the Swedish investigation board indicates the aircraft stalled during approach because the wing of the SF-25 aircraft type loses lift significantly in rainy circumstances. A warning against flying in rain was given in the original operating handbook in German but not translated into Swedish.
